The National Civil War Naval Museum stands on the bank of the Chattahoochee River. It preserves the largest surviving Confederate warship, the CSS Jackson, as well as the wreckage of the CSS Chattahoochee. Ship replicas and impressive panoramic displays add to the educational experiences while the artifacts include naval flags, uniforms, and Admiral Farragut’s two-star hat insignia. At the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center, visitors find thousands of artifacts, monuments, interactive exhibits and video presentations about the United State’s military history.
Imagine the opportunity to explore both sites with knowledgeable guides on a chartered bus tour? That’s exactly what Kennesaw State University Center for the Study of the Civil War Era is hosting next month! Here’s the scoop on their upcoming event from the official site and shared with permission:
Leave the planning to us and enjoy a stress-free day full of adventure and education! The Center is able to provide experts in the field to provide you with the highest quality information and admission to sites not normally seen by the average tourist (hint, hint: cannon firing!)
Hosted on October 12, 2019, this excursion will feature a tour on a private, chartered bus to Columbus, Georgia, to visit the National Civil War Naval Museum and also the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center.
